All of us have a physical place of work in some form or another and these spaces have a significant impact on the environment. The Circular Office initiative is about changing the way that we design office spaces, how we use products within them, and the ways in which we operate in these areas to eliminate waste and create more efficient, resilient spaces. It is a change in mindset from throwing things away after we have made use of them to refurbishing, recycling and regenerating items at the end of their life. There is a whole range of things that businesses can do including:
● Changing how you source, use and dispose of office goods including food, paper, plastic, office furniture, textiles and electronics.
● Influencing employees to change their mindset towards recycling, reusing, commuting and spending habits
● Looking at the design of new offices or refurbishing and repurposing existing buildings
● Building local partnerships with charities, SMEs and other businesses that keep the value of resources going and provides employment
BITC and Zero Waste Scotland invite you to join them on March 4, when experts will help identify steps your organisation can take to become circular and share tools and products you can use to take action.
This workshop is designed for senior managers, heads of and directors working in HR, facilities, procurement and sustainability.
Spaces are limited and on a first-come basis. Register here.
